LUCY Mecklenburgh may have swapped the grey skies of Essex for the sun of Erinsborough.
She’s shared a photo and hinted that she could have a cameo role in long-running Australian drama Neighbours.
Lucy’s boyfriend Ryan Thomas has landed a part on the show playing Rafael Humphries, a new guy in town who seems to have a creepy obsession with Paul Robinson.
Fans of the Channel 5 show watched as Rafael stole a key at Lassiter’s hotel during a 1990s themed party. He then rifled through Paul’s belongings, got weird with a chess piece, and stood over Paul as he slept.
And Lucy has shared a snap of herself with Stefan Dennis who plays Paul, plus Alan Fletcher who plays Karl Kennedy.
She captioned it: “Make sure u tune in to @neighbours hit & run 10pm channel 5 tonight!!! U may see a new mysterious character.”
Fans were quick to speculate that Lucy herself would be appearing in the show.
One exclaimed: “Say whaaat are you on Neighbours???”
And another: “I knew Ryan was going to be in it but from this picture I thought Lucy would be in this episode.”
Lucy and Ryan are currently in the UK and this week enjoyed a pre-Valentine’s Day date at swanky Manchester restaurant Rosso, where a three-course Valentine’s meal which includes a bottle of Laurent-Perrier Rose costs a cool £300 “per booth”, followed up by a trip in a Rolls Royce.
The ex-Towie star is one of a number of celebs who have wished their fans a happy Valentine’s Day with a sultry under-crackers snap.
She posted a picture of herself in a romantic red slip to Instagram, saying cheekily: “Valentines night in or night out?”
